Romeo biography (bio):
Percy Romeo Miller, Jr is better known by his stage name Romeo (formerly Lil' Romeo), is an American rapper and actor. He is the son of rapper, producer and entertainment mogul Master P and nephew of C-Murder and Silkk the Shocker. He records southern rap hip-hop music on his father's Guttar Music label. He has so far released three studio albums and two compilation albums. His fifth album God's Gift was released on December 12, 2006.
Before all of his success Romeo always had a gift for rapping even at the young age of 4. His father Master P mentioned that he left him home to play with his cousins one day and came home and his son told him he wrote a rap song all by himself. Also before Romeo became famous he was featured in some of Master P's early records. At the age of 11, Lil Romeo followed in his father Master P's footsteps and became a rapper. As rumored, Romeo's father, Master P, wrote all of Romeo's earlier rhymes. Now parody group Broken Equipment Productions ghost write for Romeo. They were quoted in Source Magazine saying "When we write Romeo's lyrics, we don't think at all. We just go in the booth and rap whatever we think at that very second. If we think of flowers and cotton candy then we write that down and give it to Romeo. It's better we do it because Romeo never writes raps." He beat Michael Jackson's record of the youngest person to get a number one with his first single "My Baby". His success came from his two early studio albums, mainly Game Time. He mentioned that he did the album all by himself, at his home studio, which was shown on the show MTV Cribs. Lil Romeo released a third album called Romeoland, with guest appearances from Nick Cannon, Master P, and his new group, the Rich Boyz, but this didn't get as much attention as his previous two. He released two more unnoticed albums, Lottery and God's Gift in 2006.
Romeo opened a new recording label named Guttar Music. Romeo also appeared on most of his father's greatest hits, such as "I Need Dubs". He is in a rap group with his cousins and younger brother, Young V called "Rich Boyz". So far the Rich Boyz have released one studio album but the group appeared on most of the tracks on God's Gift. Since then, Romeo has been working on his new album, Gumbo Station. This will be his first studio album for three years and his first studio album to use the name Romeo. He mentioned on his myspace page that this is going to be his best album yet. Guests will include Master P and the Guttar Music Family and production by Dr Dre. After the album has been released in 2007, Romeo will be concentrating more on his basketball than his music.
Romeo launched a new record label with his father Master P. The record label aims to release music without any explicit content, due to the fact that Master P and Romeo have agreed to stop explicit language in their music.
He was recently invited in summer 2006 to the Reebok-sponsored ABCD, considered the premier basketball camp in the United States. The Teaneck, New Jersey-based ABCD camp is an invitation-only basketball showcase that has produced a host of high-profile players, including Tracy McGrady, Kobe Bryant, Stephon Marbury, Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James.
On April 13, 2007, Miller verbally committed to the University of Southern California (USC). Miller, a 6'1" point guard at Beverly Hills High School, averaged 13.9 points and 5.6 assists per game during the 2006-2007 high school season. He will be joined by fellow commit and good friend Demar DeRozan, who is a recruit from Compton High School; both were coached by Miller's father Master P during the spring and summer months.
Romeo has created P. Miller Shoes. Recently he stated that he has another line out, Gumbo Station mentioned on "Special Girl" and also Passion Jeans. This line also features his "Cookie Monster" gear.
Romeo is the CEO of the clothing line. He also admits he has a clothing line from his latest single "Special Girl". In photo shoots, Romeo would wear clothes from his clothing line. Recently, he has been sporting clothes from the line. "P. Miller Shoes" are always on sale at Master P's MySpace.
During Romeo's 3rd album Romeoland, Romeo introduced his own rap group called the Rich Boyz. The members of the group include Romeo's cousins and his younger brother Young V. So far, the group has released one album Young Ballers: The Hood Been Good To Us and has appeared in most of Romeo's tracks such as "U Can't Shine Like Me". They have also been in most of Romeos videos as far back as "2way" and "Thats Kool". It has been reported that in 2008 there will be a second album from them.
